fpherj48 3 years ago from Beautiful Upstate New York Author

"I can use the traffic..." Well, Wayne, if that hasn't become the popular mantra around here these days...eh?

Funny how life has a way of "changing." For 30 or 40 years, going to and from work, our one thought was, "I hope I don't have to deal with too much traffic!" Go figure. Thanks for the visit. "If I knew you were coming, I'd of baked a cake"......Don't remember who sang that in the '50's, all I can think of Rosemary Clooney, but it wasn't her.

Yes....beware, this is the sort of life-changing questions I ponder, since I retired.........

Thanks for the mention...I can use the traffic! I love the way you have woven poetic verse into the reasoning. HP is a one of kind place. I have looked for others but have yet to find anything that comes close. You neglected to mention yourself here....certainly worthy of a visit or two! Thanks, Paula. ~WB

ishwaryaa22 Nice of you to stop by my site. As you can see by the comments from our fellow-hubbers, everyone seems to share the same feelings.

lord....have decalred you "not guilty,' but keep in mind, that never means "innocent."

Glad to have you stop by. I suspect the Super Bowl fans are MIA for most of the day. I too am off on a mission, but no football for me. It's not an interest of mine. I raised FOUR football players and sat in the stands, waving banners and freezing my ass off for YEARS....never knowing for one second, what the HELL was going on!! (Confessions of a Mom)...Rah, Rah....can I go home now?

WoW!! Looks like I've been sleeping at the keyboard!! Let me catch up on responses, my friends....sorry for the delay!!

Wayne...Thank you. I'm happy to have a CLEAR GRASP on something in my life!!! lol

PDXKaraokeguy....Isn't it great? HP is now my first stop for information of any kind! Gotta love it.

tarajeyaram....Oh, it's an ESCAPE all right! and if I don't find my way back home soon, the homefront is going to crumble!!! LOL

thesingernurse...I agree 100%. Some of the writers here on HP blow my mind with their genius. It IS an honor to be a part of this group!

rLcasaLme.....Thank you for such complimentary comments. You made my day!

jacqui2011....Yes, we must bear the pain, fellow-hubber...the stiff neck, sore back, eye fatigue. Never have these terrible things been so worth it!!

Now this is cool stuff. I was just about to comment when a friend just minutes ago commented prior to me. Isn't that great? Now, that's the HubPages experience. You get to meet wonderful people.

This is one great hub! Very creative to have jotted down a list.

fpherj48 4 years ago from Beautiful Upstate New York Author

Wayne, I am honored that an author of your phenomenal talent has stopped by to vist. I'm pleased you appreciate my "fun-hub," which was really just a part of a group effort to spread cheer and good news during the Holiday Season. Being only 7 months on-board, I have miles & miles to travel and hundreds of writers to meet. My immediate concern at this point is, reminding myself that I actually have a LIFE away from this screen! Peace!

Eddy... Thank you so much. I'm so glad you stopped by to visit. Have a wonderful New Year!

Tilly....you may intrude anytime you choose. "Nicknames," although I manage to create them for others, has been something I've managed to avoid..That is, until becoming a member of our HP community. Since joining, I'm amazed at all the "firsts" I have experienced. More than that, they've all been "positive." Like you, I couldn't be happier!


tillsontitan profile image

tillsontitan 4 years ago from New York

Little late getting back on your reply to me -- someone's always swatting someone when there's kids in the room, or at least complaining about it anyway :)

If I may intrude on your conversation I've found HP is a great place to get nicknames Effer -- mine is Tilly or Till. Seems you and I travel in many of the same circles and I couldn't be happier about it.

fpherj48 profile image

fpherj48 4 years ago from Beautiful Upstate New York Author

Looking at things straight on or from a personal "slant" is one the things that makes being a hubber so much fun! Yes, my, ahhh "nickname," so-to-speak is compliments of none other than our lovable Sunshine. Out of the blue she told me that my hub name "initials," looked like EF-ER-JAY....EfferJ!! Then she dropped the J to come up with EFFER. Wonder why she did that? hmmmm. For a while, it was our little secret. Using SUNSHINE & secret in the same sentence is ridiculous! Now hubbers across the community know me as "Effer." Special, huh? lol. Wesman Todd Shaw said it goes along with his regular use of profanities! lmao. Thanks for stopping by. You are one of my very favorites!

Hi Paula,

Now this is called PIMPING HUBPAGES! Great reasons . . . and thanks for the "slant" mention :)

BTW, I've realized lately that your nickname is now Effer. I like it.

YOU, dear EFFER, have been an AWESOME addition to hubpages!!! YOU, dear EFFER, have your own unique slant that I just love.

Cogerson profile image

Cogerson 4 years ago from Virginia

Very nicely done, I think that the HubPage community is the only reason that I am still here after almost a year. I tried many different websites....but by far the response and the goodwill found here on HubPages is the best. Over the last year I feel I have made many new friends...and they are all over the world...which is really cool.

Never in my life have I said things like...."I was talking to my friend from London earlier today"(Steve Lensman) or "My friend from Australia is taking a break from Hub Pages for awhile"(attempted humour)....it is awesome...just like your hub.

Thanks for including me in number 25....I like being included in such a nice group of people. Voted up and voted awesome...and I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday.

Do I feel like a bully? Nope. Not at all. I'm pretty sure you're multi-opinionated. There's no doubt about that. I know a lot of people like that. And, I'm sure you can go round after round. The only question is is whether or not, you repeat yourself with the same irrationality? LMAO! At least this hub was easier to deal with. LOL!

Then I get to number 25 and lo and behold, there I am! What a thrill to be counted among your friends. Thank you, you humble me. May I also add, every one of your 26 reasons is oh so correct. This a truly new and exciting community and I am proud to be a part of it! Merry Christmas to you. Voted up and beautiful (for its thoughtfulness of all hubbers.)
